I’ve given you my thoughts on why the Redskins lost to the Cincinnati Bengals now, what’s yours?
The Redskins need to look more fluid on offense. They get a couple of nice runs then they tend to abandon it. They did run some nice option plays in the 3rd quarter which helped get the offense going in the second half. This loss falls on the defensive side of the ball once again. Bengals QB Andy Dalton took a lot of quick three step drops to get the ball out quick and our corners D’Angelo Hall & Josh Wilson had a lot of trouble covering the Bengals outside receivers today. The Bengals receivers were covering short, medium, and long passes. The defense once again failed to step up today and the offense needs to game plan better.
It’s time for the Redskins D to ‘man up.’
Watching the Redskins take on the Rams on Sunday, when Brian Orakpo got up running and really mad after tackling the Rams OL that was advancing a fumble, I had no idea we’d lost one of our best defensive players for the year.
The NFL has removed a replacement official from the New Orleans-Carolina game because it discovered he’s a Saints fan.
For the Ric Flair reference, see this video.
Last week, in game 1 against the vaunted New Orleans Saints passing attack, the main key to the game was patience on both sides of the ball. Save for one breakdown on special teams, I thought the Redskins played well in all facets of the game.
